by Kara Manning
A scene from 1996's "Trainspotting"

It might be 2015, but on tonight's FUV Winter Drive edition of UKNY, we'll rewind 20 (and more) years to the eclectic '90s. Portishead, Ride and The Sundays were fresh-faced kids stomping across Britain and the "Trainspotting" soundtrack ruled every club, pub and movie theatre in the summer of '96. Also, we'll revisit turn of the century, one-album wonders like Mono and One Dove.

by Marshall Crenshaw
Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis

Yes, that's right, a whole show of outtakes and things that were saved from the cutting room floor, the wastebasket, or the bulk eraser.
